Avocado and Shrimp Salad

Recipe coming your way in a second! First, let’s recap today’s workout.

After working through the morning at Starbucks, I took a mid-day breather and headed to the gym for a cardio workout. My 50 minute workout looked like this:

Hopping around made the workout fly by!

After my time at the gym, I headed home and immediately threw together a fantastic lunch.

Lunch

There’s something about the flavor of cilantro that simply screams fresh. I adore the herb and the punch of flavor it provides to salsa and other dishes like my garam masala chicken. I know it tastes like soap to some people, but I am a cilantro lover through and through!

This afternoon, I made a delicious lunch that centered around cilantro, avocado and shrimp.

Sliced Avocado

Avocados are on sale at my local grocery store and I bought a bunch earlier this week. So far all of the avocados I’ve used have been perfectly ripe. The avocado I used in this salad added the perfect amount of creaminess to the dish.

    Cilantro really does freshen up a dish. Unfortunately (for him), my lovely boyfriend thinks it tastes like soap, so I always have to add it to food after it’s portioned out. Throw in some avocado and I’m a happy girl!

    Cilanto IS amazing and I love it. I am attempting (round 2) to grow my own this year and so hope I successfully do so.
    This recipe looks totally delish and I really hope I get to try it out one of these days soon. Maybe with GRILLED shrimp… oh yea 🙂
